The ViClarity 5K A Day raises €1200 so far in aid of Mental Health Ireland
The final run of the ViClarity “5K A Day” in aid of Mental Health Ireland took place on Saturday December 17th at the ViClarity office in Tralee. This was the tenth run in ten consecutive days that the ViClarity team had set out on since the launch of the fundraising campaign on December 8th.
There have been a lot of sore bodies and tight muscles around the office in the last ten days but it has all been worth it in the end. The team are delighted to have raised funds of €1200 so far for Mental Health Ireland with ViClarity also donating to the charity.
John McElhinney, Area Development Officer at Mental Health Ireland for Clare and Limerick visited the ViClarity office on Monday for the presentation of a cheque for €1200 and thanked everyone for taking part in raising vital funds for the charity. John spoke about the importance of such a fundraiser in not only raising money for the charity but also creating awareness for Mental Health and showing it is okay to ask for help. He hopes that the runs will encourage others to get out for a run or walk as being active is important for sustaining a persons mental health and wellbeing.
The ViClarity staff would like to thank everyone who donated to the fundraiser so far and have decided to implement the run into their weekly routines for 2017 and will go for a run at least once a week. There is still time to donate to the cause and donations can be made here.
